Catherine Pearlman has some of the best parenting advice you will ever receive- Ignore your kids. Before you shake your head and walk away . . . ponder this for a moment. When it comes to disciplining our children, many of us find ourselves sounding like broken records issuing reprimands that seem to fall on deaf ears. We want to teach our children how to behave well, but somehow the more we tell them what's wrong with their behavior, the more inclined they are to continue it. In this revolutionary parenting book, Dr. Pearlman shows parents that by "selectively ignoring" your kids' misbehavior, you allow your children the space they need to actually learn from their mistakes.

Dr. Pearlman shows parents that by ignoring their children's indiscretions they are giving them the opportunity to absorb the real-life consequences of their negative behavior. Children's self-esteem increases and parental satisfaction hits new heights. Using proven strategies supported by research, this book shows parents how to-
- Ignore children when they are engaging in a power struggle
- Ignore children instead of providing negative attention
- Use effective behavior modification techniques to diminish and often eliminate problem behaviors

Ignore It! helps parents improve their kids' behavior and put the joy back in parenting.
